“Republicans are patriots, they love their families,” allowed Barack Obama, “but they are operating on a theory that time and again has proven to be wrong.” What theory is that? “[I]f we just reward folks at the top, everybody else will do just fine.” In truth, here’s the difference: Conservatives believe that money belongs to the person who earned it. We’re not “rewarding” anybody by letting them keep the fruits of their own labor. Leftists believe that what a person earns belongs to someone else – namely, the government, which can then redistribute it to favored constituent groups. Who’s theory, exactly, has proven to be wrong?
Mr. Sotero says that nothing is getting done because of Republicans. “Their willingness to say no to everything – the fact that since 2007, they have filibustered about 500 pieces of legislation that would help the middle class just gives you a sense of how opposed they are to any progress – has actually led to an increase in cynicism and discouragement among the people who were counting on us to fight for them,” Obama said. He’s exaggerating for effect, but the petulant attitude is what’s troubling. That and the idea that the federal government is the solution to every “middle class” problem. As Obama added, “They need us. Not because they want a handout, but because they know that government can serve an important function in unleashing the power of our private sector.” Funny, but it actually never does.
Not only is ObamaCare the most amazingly wonderful law ever written, says BHO, but Republican opposition disqualifies them from controlling either chamber of Congress. “I can’t explain it, why they’re so obsessed that those folks don’t have health insurance,” Obama said. “But we’re on the right side of history on that issue. But if that’s all they got, then they shouldn’t be running either chamber. They shouldn’t be running the House and they sure should not be running the Senate.” Fortunately, he’s not likely to get his wish.
